Title: Where is Away?

URL: http://www.deq.state.or.us/lq/pubs/docs/sw/curriculum/RRPart0207.pdf

Abstract: This lesson is designed for grades K-3. Students will recognize that there is no "away" in "throw it away", identify the destination of the waste they generate at home and at school, identify the negative aspects of dumping or burning trash, and learn the "solid waste hierarchy" for best management of our trash. This lesson can be used with Shel Silverstein's book, "Where the Sidewalk Ends"
